Can anyone help me out, my Pioneer Amp is over heating and really bad.
You could put a computer fan in to cool it, but by i would say that your amp is struggling to power the sub and its getting hot due to it not being big enuff.
Give sum more details to your system.
how do you know it is overheating?, where is it mounted?, what is the amp powering?,
could be many things without more info
well some ppl are telling me that its normal, amps heat up and its the casing its designed to do that to draw away the heat from the inside of the amp.
It on my boot floor and its powering a sub, i bought it all from JB and the guy said that it would do fine
its not being covered by anything, like a blanket ect?
1989 Executive 3.8 V6
2ch or 4ch? how many terminal posts on the sub? you may have it wired up in parallel (if there is 4 posts) not in series causing your amp to cut out in protection mode (1ohm/2ohms/4ohms) , who installed it?
whats the model numbers of the sub and amp?
more info on your system is needed
Maybe try turning the gain down a little. If the gain is set too high, it uses heaps more power without actually being much louder. Turning the gain down a little - might cool it down heaps without affecting the performance. Something quick and easy to try anyway.
how do you know it's overheating? Is it switching itself off or is it getting hot to the touch?
